Ansel Adams: Photography from the Mountains to the Sea
|Ansel Adams, 1902-1984 - Google Images|
Water was one of Adams favourite subjects. He photographed it in waterfalls, rivers and rapids, ice and snow. Born in San Francisco, he photographed the Pacific coast, and later his beloved Yosemite Valley.
Beautiful silver gelatin prints.
I love them.

Hope your week is peaceful and lovely
